There is a wide variety of glues. The most common types of glue are white or clear in color. Most of the glues you will find on your carpet will be the water-based variety. If the glue on your carpet is not water-based, contact the glue manufacturer for removal instructions. These types of glues will often require strong chemicals or a professional cleaning to be removed. Cleaners Bermondsey suggest a few useful steps for removing water-based glue from your carpet.What should you do?
To begin, scrape off as much as you can from the glue stain with a spoon. The more you can get the better.
Prepare a mixture of 1 tbsp. of liquid dish washing detergent and 2 cups of cool water in a small container. Then blot the stain with a clean, white cloth until the moisture is completely absorbed.
Repeat this three to four times until the stain is gone. If the stain does not go away, follow the next step.
Make a solution of 1 tbsp. of 3 percent ammonia and 2 cups of water. Submerge a white cloth in the ammonia solution and blot at the stain. Then use another, dry cloth, and blot up the moisture. Do this until the stain is gone. Always remove excess moisture by blotting at the moistened area with a dry, white cloth in order to not create more serious carpet problem such as mold.
In case the stain is from dry glue , you have to treat it with enough petroleum jelly to cover the stained area.
You also have to apply the right amount of waterless hand cleaner to cover the stained area.
Soak a 1/8-inch stack of paper towels with warm water and place them onto the stained area. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes.
After that remove the paper towels and take care of the stain in the same way you would for wet glue.
